Recollections From the Ladies of the Class of 1961
Ladies and Gentlemen of the Class of 1961: What you are about to read are
responses to a pursuit in the making over the past few years. Aided by several
of our ‘mates and Ladies, we now begin to read “Recollections of Life with a
Graduate of the Class of 1961.” You’ll read stories, maybe with a special twist
and some personal viewpoints as authored by Ladies of 1961. Earlier in June
2021, Lucy Paone working with Ed Brown invited the Golden Girls [widows of our
deceased ‘mates] to submit their own Recollections: humorous, insightful, sad,
uplifting, challenging, exciting and the list could go on...
We guys have been doing this sort of writing routinely for over sixty years:
That is telling our own stories. As your Scribe, I believe, the Ladies’
Recollections will become a window that opens up onto our Class history which in
turn becomes part of West Point’s recorded history via the AOG. Perhaps as well,
the Ladies are passing along and reminding us of lessons about the Army’s
culture that we all experienced over these many years.
An FYI: Following distribution of Lucy's invitation there has been added
interest as well among the Ladies of surviving Classmates.
